    After gaining fame as a member of teen-pop sensations B2K, Omarion seeks rebirth on O, his debut solo record. Omarion acknowledges his past on "Growing Pains," where the young singer bares his soul in a sort of apology for the demise of his group and for any lingering bitterness between the members. The song even features the most sincere of spoken laments near the end, but outside of that tune, Omarion has his eyes glued to his present and future.
    Omarion sets the tone for O on the opening track, "I Wish," showing a true maturity as he examines his own weaknesses (including his confusion about love) with admirable strength. The Neptunes work their magic and lay down a seductive backdrop for the able vocalist on "Touch." He reveals deep roots, hearkening back to a 1970s-going-on-'80s funkiness on "Never Gonna Let You Go (She's A Keepa)," which features a welcome guest shot by Big Boi. Omarion wisely closes on his strong suit with a spate of sweet ballads in the New Edition vein.
